Heating and cooling are the biggest consumers of your home’s energy. Your thermostat’s settings are responsible for almost HALF of your home’s total energy usage! In comparison, your water heater accounts for about 14-18%. That being said, it’s important to take steps toward having a more energy efficient heating and cooling system. The Nest Thermostat is a smart thermostat that learns how and when to keep you comfortable and save energy. On average, the Nest Thermostat saves homeowners up to 12% on heating costs and up to 15% on cooling costs, equating to an estimated average savings of up to $145 annually!
Things that set the Nest Thermostat apart:
- Nest was the FIRST thermostat in America to have earned an ENERGY STAR®
- You can control your thermostat from anywhere with the Nest App
It knows when you’re “Away” and adjusts itself accordingly.
- Nest ‘learns’ which temperature settings you prefer during different times of the day and will set itself to accommodate your own personal preferences and schedule.
- The unit displays a Nest Leaf to let you know when your thermostat is set to an economical temperature and when you are realizing significant energy savings.
